Sergiño Dest will be unavailable for Barcelona for the foreseeable future. It seems like the youngster’s status is day-to-day, and we should have more information by the end of the week.

The right thigh injury will sideline him and he’ll miss out on the Cornellà match tomorrow. Ronald Koeman spoke about Dest in his presser this morning, updating us on his status.

With regard to Dest yes it’s true he’s not available for tomorrow. I don’t know if he will be available for Sunday, we’ll see. Sergi Roberto is training individually again, maybe next week he can train with the group and then it’ll depend on how he feels physically. We will make those decisions later on. He’s working hard and doesn’t have a long way to go to get back.

It seems Dest might also miss the weekend’s trip to Elche, meaning Oscar Mingueza is likely to continue at right-back.
